Conditional Formatting

I have an Excel workbook with two sheets. The “Mark” sheet allows you to capture the names and marks. The “Level” sheet displays the level for the entered mark in the first sheet. The problem I have is that for the rows that have no names the cell is still formatted. It should only do this for rows that have names. See attached file.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The problem is with the IF statements in column B on the Level tab. You need to define what should happen when the cells on the Mark tab are blank. Here's an IF statement you can use that'll set blank values on the Mark tab to being blank values on the level tab.

=IF(Mark!B4="", "", IF( Mark!B4<=39, "1", IF( Mark!B4<=69, "2", IF( Mark!B4<=100, "3" ) ) ))

you can change your formula to: =IF(ISBLANK(Mark!A4)=FALSE,(IF( Mark!B4<=39, "1", IF( Mark!B4<=69, "2", IF( Mark!B4<=100, "3" ) ) )),0)
this basically checks whether or not the name exists, before performing your conditional formatting.
